Scottsdale Maverick Real Estate Agent, Mark Van Dyke Featured on HGTV -- Tiny Paradise.
SCOTTSDALE, Arizona—real estate maverick, Mark Van Dyke, was recently featured on HGTV’s acclaimed show “Tiny Paradise.” Capitalizing on the popular tiny home trend, the program features innovative tiny homes from around the world. The show’s producers traveled to Cave Creek, Arizona to produce a truly unique episode of a tiny home built in the Sonoran Desert—the Heart of Cowboy country.
Van Dyke followed architect Scott Hildebrand’s vision, “In the summer the temperature is 115° in the shade—there is no shade! I first noticed the steel sticks and skins rising from the phoenix patched together with the sizzle and flash of the welding torch—reminded me of an armadillo.”
“A man cave—with a skin of rusted steel, insulated glass, reclaimed materials, and a whole lot of other stuff growing in the desert before my eyes. Authentic and organic design and décor … an outdoor shower and cactus garden that opens up welcoming the shade of 200-year old saguaros highlighting spectacular desert sunrises and sunsets.”
Scott asked, “Mark, come on over and take look.” I said, “It’s so biddy it’ll only take one!” My brother Walker and I rode over to check it out. “—Wow!” Multi-level—a raised kitchen over concealed storage and a sleeping loft. This tiny desert paradise features innovative air-conditioning with a rustic cantilevered skylight. The rising warm air appears to give lift to the vintage wooden airplane wing hung adrift overhead. A Herman Miller Eames chair highlights a compact lofty living space of light and color—leaving room for your imagination.
